My contribution to this collection is FIRST DAY JITTERS, a crisp, rhythmic story about the anxiety and excitement of starting school . . . in the Pacific Northwest! This rhyming read-aloud offers opportunities to introduce children to American Sign Language and hands-on, STEM-friendly activities and objects such as geodes, fossils and compost. I am so excited about this book. I know in my heart it will play an instrumental role in empowering young readers.
Please contact me if you'd like to invite me to visit your school, library, or community organization.
